I am running xp pro and explorer 6
on many web pages when I press the red cross I just get an error noise from my pc
and I can only minimise the page
even multiple closing does not work

You could try SFC /scannow from run and hit enter and/or go to control panel and double click administrative tools then click event viewer. Click application and report the errors with a red X.

Sorry my bad explanation
it is the white cross on the red background (the one to close the page ) that does not work

thats just a 'stop' button, close is at the top right.

fredyflame, your first explanation was fine. My reply "report the errors with the red X" are errors that are generated in a log file under event viewer in admin tools in control panel.

sorry, my mistake, i was looking at IE5.5 in winME, where the only red cross is the 'stop' button.

a quick look at IE6 in winXP proves me wrong.

Thats the one - Red background white cross

  tafoody 15:30 08 Jan 2004

yes, i was getting muddled with version 5.5

try the advice offered by spikeychris or you could try a repair of IE click here

Who do I report the errors to?

  spikeychris 15:51 08 Jan 2004
